#4 - Do you include flights?

We do not include flights (with the exception of our Irish Invasion). We recommend the website ( skyscanner.net).Skyscanner is a good site to search for flights with plenty of filters to sort by airline, price, flight time etc.

To offer the widest possible variety, we do not include tickets in our hotel packages. We let you pick/combine the hotel option and ticket option that best suits your needs.

Yes, we offer Ticket Only sales. Please be sure to select the delivery/collection method that best suits you.

#8 - Can I extend my hotel stay?

Yes, we can offer extra nights before or after our standard package dates (subject hotel availability). When booking online just select your preferred start/finish dates.

#9 - Do you offer travel insurance?

We do not offer travel insurance but we highly recommend you consider purchasing insurance locally.

#10 - Is my grandstand covered?

Not all circuits offer covered grandstand, for the circuits that do offer covered grandstands, these typically sell out very quickly. Under each event on our website we include a track map which indicates which grandstands are covered (if available).

#11 - Can I access grandstands with my paddock pass?

Paddock Passes do not grant access to grandstands, they do however generally grant access to general admission areas. For most circuits (especially Mugello/Misano/Valencia) we highly recommend paddock pass holders consider purchasing a grandstand ticket in addition. For circuits with very good General Admission such Brno or Philip Island a paddock pass is usually sufficient.

Ticket prices vary greatly depending on the venue and the inclusions. General Admission is the cheapest option but does not offer a reserved seat. Hospitality options such as VIP Village, MotoGP Team Experience and Pole Position club are our dearest options but these include hospitality so it is worth comparing how much you think you might spend at food/beverage vendors.

The MotoGP/Moto2 team hospitality provides the teams with a private environment within the paddock where the team (rider, mechanics etc) can have meals and relax, it also allows the team to host sponsors and guests.
